You know, nothing is free in this life.Kannapolis NC has been ecstatic ever since the announcement by mult-bazillionaire David Murdock of the North Carolina Research Campus.  If you're not familiar with the project, it's a collaboration between Murdock and the University of North Carolina system ...
